NJ follow up - BANANA MUFFIN TOP RECIPE

Thanks to all my Jersey folk that came out for the 1st of many classes 
at Bfit in Pompton Plains.
love that you
support 
ALPHA VENICE
from afar.
working on bringing ALPHA NYC/NJ
to life! 

I know your experience with NIKE TRAINING CLUB was EPIC!
Please help spread the word so we can grow & add other days & times for this class.
It was great to see all of you.  I am impressed by how important your health & the health of your families is to you!

To answer some questions:

Protein Powders:

I prefer Proto Whey by BNRG
You can always find it on AMAZON as well as in most Vitamin Shoppes
I have my own supply & you can always order from me

Vega is a great one as well, creator fellow fitness enthusiast Brendan Braizer is a friend & will always support

Shakeology I really love the green & the chocolate
(i am working on having my own supply to send out to clients)

if & when you run out the best place to go is WHOLE FOODS any
365 Whey Powder is do-able

Protein Bars/Snack options:

Perfect Foods Bars
Power Crunch Bars
Think Thin Bars

The best snack options are always REAL FOOD OPTIONS:
from lowest to highest

bars > cold cuts > grilled meats
cheeses > mixed nuts > nut butters > avocado > fish oils
breads > rice cakes > starches > grains
veggies > veggies > veggies

SNACKS:

deli meat, crackers & a string cheese
grilled chicken fingers, rice cakes & 1/2 an avocado
brown rice salmon hand roll
tofu sticks, fruit with nuts/nut butter

prepackaged HEALTHY purchases 

ndividual edamame containers
fage yogurt
grapes, apples, bananas, berries....any kind of fruit & nut is already pre packaged


CARBS ARE GOOD....
they fill up your muscle & energize/FUEL the body
this is why Atkins people lose weight quickly & are skinny fat

normally people think that they will lose fat if they dont eat enough or at all, as crazy as that sounds
your body wont go right to fat to use as fuel when you dont eat it goes directly for the muscle.

so yes, you lose MASS, but your metabolism is in the toilet & you will be flabby #justsayin

so please EAST CLEAN COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES & all of the simple carbs you can
the move veggies you consume the healthier your GI tract will be
when you choose to eat complex carbs such as grain & starches
(yes it is in fact a choice what to put into your body)
balance the carbs with proteins & fats.....so your blood sugar will balance your energy levels
intake more COMPLEX carbs with breakfast & lunch
& try to stick with SIMPLE with dinner
FRUIT does amazing things BUT high in the type of sugars the SPIKE BLOOD SUGAR
to watch your energy levels only have fruits with breakfast, morning snack, or lunch
this is make sure you dont hit the mid day gloom around 4.

GLUTEN FREE is safe & better than processed wheat the country consumes with every meal
it is definitely a step in the right direction for your families
though the transition is not usually that smooth, these days it is much easier to find these options at the market.  be patient & do your research!

AS PROMISED here are a few of my RECIPES

Keep your eyes open for my release date of the  
ALPHA SWEETS cook book

PUMPKIN PROTEIN PANCAKES
pancakes are great to go breakfast options
i usually make a bunch for almond butter sandwiches.....on the go they are DIVINE

PUMPKIN BROWNIES
best thing to bring to parties, then you know what you are snacking on

GINGER BROWNIES
a holiday fav, not for all tastes but GINGER is amazing for you tumtum
